SAN DIEGO, CA, January 31, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Jackson Design & Remodeling (JDR)
, an award-winning San Diego-based design and remodeling firm, asked its team of expert designers to list the top trends - materials, colors, styles and textures - that will impact interior design in 2014. Whether you're a homeowner considering a remodel or you're simply looking to freshen up a space, following are the Top 14 design trends for 2014
to consider incorporating into your next home improvement project:
The recognized authority on color, Pantone, has deemed 2014 to be the year of the purple-toned hue. Expect to see pops of this fun, bold color brightening magazine pages and home interiors through accent pillows, rugs, linens and accessories.
Black and White:
Black and White is a timeless design aesthetic that is making a bold comeback this year. Look for black and white palettes combined with strong geometric patterns and pops of color.
With the release of The Great Gatsby film last year, there is a re-emerging fascination with glamorous touches. Polished brass is showing up in every room in the house as a gleaming accent tone.
What originally began as a "green" solution has become a desired aesthetic. Reclaimed woods are being used in wall art, wall coverings and custom furniture pieces, earning them a spot on our list as a hot new trend for 2014.
Sleek, structured white on white makes a bold statement. Filling a home with strong, sculptural pieces expressing simple geometries accentuates a home's architectural features.
Incorporating fur, usually as a rug or a throw, but also in furniture, adds a warm and cozy feeling to any interior, particularly minimalist- modern spaces.
Glitz and Glamour:
Glass, crystal and acrylic accessories spotlight the focus on glamour this year.
From a kid's bedroom to a kitchen or office, this trend is both stylish and functional.
Wallpaper created from custom digital art makes a room personal and creative. Designs range from purely abstract and subtle to colorfully representational.
Grays, blues, or whites in a monochromatic palette make a dramatic impression in a subdued, sophisticated way.
Mix and Match:
Layering textures and materials such as metal and wood is key to the eclectic look achieved with the mix and match trend.
Rustic wood blended with modern elements is a steady trend with many visual expressions.
Dark walls with white trims combined with pops of vibrancy in furniture and accessories display an exciting return to color this year.
From the weathered appearance of repurposed woods to the sleeker presentation of black, red or white painted wood, barn doors are beautiful design elements to the home and one of the hottest design trends of 2014.
, ASID, head of the design team at JDR, says homeowners can expect to see more and more color this year. "For 2014, we're seeing bold pops of color, especially in purples and lilacs, and also reclaimed and rustic woods used in non-traditional ways, such as barn doors entryways. Then at the other end of the spectrum, expect to see more crisp and clean palettes like the classic black and white and a return to glamour which you'll see in crystal, brass and fur accents."
With trends in design, by definition, constantly changing, JDR CEO Todd Jackson
advises homeowners to consider their short and long-term goals before beginning any home remodel or design project.
"It's important for homeowners to make sure they are balancing trends with their personal style and their overall goals, keeping in mind that what is popular today, may not be in a few years when they decide to sell their home," said Jackson.
